Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNUstep Base library.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A context-dependent attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code. A
local attacker could possibly read arbitrary files.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNUstep Base library users should upgrade to the latest version:
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
